Hummingbird in flight. Hummingbirds are birds in the family Trochilidae, and are native to the Americas. They hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings up to 90 times per second. As they hover, they use their long bills and tongues to feed on the nectar found in flowers. Hummingbirds are unique in their ability to fly backwards. Photographed in South America.
